8 80 Streets Danforth (August 2019); 8 80 Streets Pineway (September 2019); 8 80 Streets Mountview (October 2019)
From August 23rd – 24th we transformed one block of Danforth Avenue into a street that exemplifies the City of Toronto’s aspiration to get traffic fatalities down to zero. The pop-up street makeover took place from Woodbine Ave to Woodmount Ave, and it’s the first of its kind in Toronto, and in Canada.
Between September 29th and October 4th, 8 80 Cities will build a prototype of a residential street that exemplifies the Citys vision to get fatalities down to zero. The key element you will see on Pineway will demonstrate reducing illegal speeding in residential areas in the city is possible.
As part of 8 80 Streets, our third installation will happen on Mountiview, October 28 -31. We’ll create a School Streets pop-up to demonstrate that streets surrounding schools should be safe for everyone, and to demonstrate that we can also use streets for play.
